IPL’s Most Expensive Player: Sam Curran
KOCHI (IANS) After becoming the most expensive buy as well as player in the Indian Premier League (IPL) history, England all-rounder Sam Curran on December 23 said that he didn’t sleep much the previous night and was a bit excited and nervous about the 2023 mini player-auction of the cash-rich tournament.
There was intense bidding between MI, CSK, RR, LSG, and PBKS for Curran, who was Player of the Tournament at the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia. However, PBKS eventually got the England all-rounder for a whopping Rs 18.50 crore at the auction.
“Obviously, going back to where it all started for me in the IPL with Punjab, where I did my debut season four years ago. So, to be going back there seems fantastic and I am looking forward to joining a few English teammates as well,” said Curran.
